Not only have you gathered so many gorgeous patterns and ideas, but you also have tutorials on different stitches. I can look back and brush up on a stitch if I get confused. That's so great. I have tried one already and can't wait to get to the next one.

This is a very generous free collection of really nice patterns! Thank you!
